The price of bread is a topic that’s been hitting the news headlines for some time now and it’s a subject that is likely to continue to gain column inches.Wheat is the main issue, with low stocks and weather problems leading to rising prices which are impacting bakers. Rising energy costs for electricity, gas and road fuel are also contributing to the necessity for bakers to recover some of the growing production costs they face.World wheat production has lagged behind consumption for five out of the last six years. Poor wheat harvests in the US, the EU, Australia and Canada have increased the cost of wheat and the recent flooding in the UK may also have an impact.At the end of the year world cereal stocks are forecast to fall to just nine weeks, which means it would not take much increase in demand or shortage of production to use up that buffer. With world corn stocks also falling the situation is being exacerbated.Biofuels add an interesting dimension to the issue. To reach the government’s target of at least 5% of the UK’s vehicle fuel coming from biofuels by 2010, there will be a significant impact on demand for grain.Meanwhile demand for farm commodities such as wheat is increasing from countries such as India and China.The combined result of the current situation is that bakers are facing greatly increased production costs, which will have to be recovered somehow.

The exhibit opened last week with a successful grand opening . Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the traveling exhibit of artifacts carefully selected from several Caribbean islands.The various display of aspects of Caribbean culinary culture brought patrons back in time to a rich history of artifacts, cooking utensils and herbs used to prepare food decades ago. The collection was assembled from countries like the Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and other islands.Attendees are also able to watch a theatrical presentation representing various cultural backgrounds including Haiti, Cuba, and Jamaica as actors on-screen give an aspiring story on the food history exhibited in the museum.

The Caribbean Culinary Museum and Theater Exhibit is the first of its kind in South Florida and Lauderhill has become the flagship for this traveling presentation.“Seeing the Dutch pot and the cast iron brought back memories of home and my childhood. When I was young, my grandmother used those same pieces to stir up my family a delicious meal. What a great way to reminisce on the past,” said David Muir, Island Syndicate President. He continues, “Lauderhill Commissioner Howard Berger was a big part of this display coming to Lauderhill. As a big supporter of all cultural efforts in his City, he believed food has a way of bringing all people together – connecting us.”The Lauderhill Historical Museum is located at 1080 NW 47th Avenue, Lauderhill, FL 33313. The exhibition is only available for limited time, running from Thursday, February 28, 2019 to Saturday, March 16, 2019.

THE re-opening of the Accident & Emergency Department at Letterkenny General Hospital later this week following last summer’s flood damage is “masking” a real crisis at the campus, stressed staff have told Donegal Daily.The ground floor of the new medical block will re-open at 8am on Wednesday, marking a remarkable turnaround following the devastation of the flood.Staff however insist there just aren’t enough nurses – or beds – to cope anymore at the hospital. Even Head Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Dr Sinead O’Gorman, told Health Minister James Reilly during his visit to the hospital last week they don’t have enough staff to cope.The staff who are there complain that they are effectively in “crisis management” all the time at a hospital which receives the least funding per patient of any other hospital in the State – often half the funding of hospitals in Cork and Dublin, and a third less than patients attending Sligo Regional Hospital.“There are too many people with clipboards in the place telling us to get on with it,” warned one experienced nurse.“The fact is we don’t have enough staff and we don’t have enough beds so we may be moving back into new facilities, but we will be having the same old headaches with overcrowding.” The medic predicted that there would “inevitably be a repeat” of previous incidents at the hospital where elderly patients had to be left on trolleys, often for many hours.“There’s a lot of spin and gloss about the hospital,” said another senior medic.“No-one wants to be seen criticising a hospital; but this is not directed at staff. They’re incredible and they work extremely hard to keep things going but it is all going to crash again and the real fear is that we lose a patient because of it.“Our politicians need to stand up for us more. Simple as that. And their words should never be seen as a criticism of staff but as a support for them.”Morale at the hospital is low, according to other staff members. Many critical posts remain unfilled; some staff have left and returned as locums.And student nurses continue to work hard, knowing that there won’t be a decent job for them in Letterkenny at the end of their studies – with a plane ticket out of Ireland their best option.“People outside the hospital need to know what’s going on inside it,” said another medic.“It might look great; but a building is no use to anyone without the people to staff it.” ‘NEW CRISIS LOOMS AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL’ STAFF WARN was last modified: March 10th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:crisisJames Reillyletterkenny hospitalStaff

The German champions have won 22 Bundesliga titles, two Big Cups, 13 German Cups, one Euro Vase and one Club World Cup in the past 35 years, a tidy haul of shiny pots they would happily surrender for the chance to hop in the club DeLorean, set the date for 7 December 1983, go through the gears until they hit 88mph and head back in time for another crack at the second leg of their Euro Vase third-round second leg defeat at the hands of Tottenham.

In the intervening years, Tottenham have added another three trophies to their roll of honour, compared to Bayern Munich’s 39. Is it any wonder those Germans are stewing? “We need to be ready both physically and mentally to find answers for the questions they will give us,” trilled Bayern manager Niko Kovac, upon being asked if he thought his team would need to be ready both physically and mentally to find answers for the questions they will give us.Meanwhile in Manchester, Pep Guardiola is preparing the Premier League champions for their first ever match against Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb.
